Watchdog to hold seminars on internet usage

 

Are you moving onto the N4L? Do you plan on introducing a BYOD programme? Watchdog is holding a series of seminars across the country to help schools manage their internet usage.

“With the introduction of BYOD, free internet access and an increase in devices using the net, many schools are starting to experience a huge increase in internet usage,” said Watchdog CEO Peter Mancer. “With more people going online, it’s inevitable that things begin to slow down. An effective internet management system can help to better manage usage so that a school can ensure consistent and reliable access for the important stuff – like learning!”

Entitled ‘Managing the Changing Pace of Internet Usage in your School’, the first two seminars are in Tauranga on 27 March and Hamilton on 15 May. Further events are planned for Christchurch (June), Dunedin (August), Wellington (September), and Palmerston North (November).

“Whether a school intends on transitioning to the Network for Learning (N4L) or remaining with their existing system, it may need to make some careful decisions about future internet filtering requirements.

“If schools would like to know more about how changes such as N4L, BYOD and UFB are going to affect them, then please come long to our free seminar. We’ll show what obstacles may need to be overcome and how to get the best out of the internet as a learning resource.”
